2K and Gearbox are cranking the hype machine to 11 today, revealing a ton of new information about the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. With a comprehensive new video featuring the cool British-accented narration of Sir Hammerlock and TORGUE’s Billy Mays-meets-Stamper obscene shouting, we’re entertained and left wanting more.
The intro video covers the new features, characters, and, most importantly, guns that will be in this latest installment to the series. Freezing cryo-weapons and pew-pew lasers await intrepid vault hunters on Elpis, alongside lowered gravity, double-jumping, butt-slamming and a weapon-combining grinder.
The video goes on to introduce the four new vault hunters, from cyber-gladiator Athena to Hyperion engineer Wilhelm.
For the theorycrafters among us, they’ve released the character’s skill trees. Players now have just under a month to min-max in cyberspace, figuring out exactly which talents will grant them the best combination of skull-crushing and loot-gaining.
Enjoy the intro video below.
